First ever free to read online Beatles book is launched

 

The first ever free to read online Beatles book has just been launched. Bob Neaverson, author of The Beatles Movies (Cassell, 1997) and co-author (with former Apple Film boss Denis O'Dell) of At the Apple's Core, has just launched a Beatles Movie website, www.beatlesmovies.co.uk.

The site is dedicated to celebrating the importance of the group's five forays into film, and includes a re-vamped version of his first book, the highly acclaimed The Beatles Movies, a critical history of the band's films, which includes interviews with such key movie personnel as former Apple boss Denis O'Dell, film director Richard Lester, and the group's favourite actor, Victor Spinetti.

This is the first time a major Beatles book has been made available completely free to read online to fans.

Along with the book, there is much else for Beatles film fans to enjoy, including videographies, quizzes, a discussion of the group's promo output and other items of fascinating trivia.

Bob explains that, "I want the site to blossom and grow and have a strong interactive element. Rather than simply re-publishing the book in hard copy form, it seemed more exciting to put it out on the web, where it can be read by everyone for free. I'm not getting any royalties, so I'm hoping that the site will eventually sustain itself through advertising, but there really is no catch... It's the world's first free to read Beatles book!"

Am I being stupid? There doesn't seem to actually be a book to download from that site.

It's a book that's been put online. It's available at Amazon probably as well if you want it in paper.

Interesting idea! I hope to make it over there one of these days, after I shovel myself out. Thanks for posting, Cor!
